losing files on reboot....

  antony-332406 19:51 05 Jan 05

system is an AMD 1700 running XP pro
i have decided to fit a larger HD in my machine, but want to reuse the old drive elsewhere,but have come across a big problem.
im using the same copy of XP with the new drive, and it loads fine, except on a cold reboot, ie after being off for an hour or 2, it wont reload windows.
it comes up with a message, something like 'a file is missing or corrupt windows/system32/config/system 'its not always the same file missing but i end up reinstalling windows again, to get the same problem
please can anyone advise?
